SACRAMENTO REGIONAL TRANSIT DISTRICT GRANT FOR THE BUS MAINTENANCE FACILITY 2 COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS FUELING EQUIPMENT PROJECT
The Sacramento Regional Transit District installed three new compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensers at its bus “Maintenance Facility #2.” The new 1,500 standard cubic feet per minute CNG dispensers will support 40 buses. Future transit needs are projected to increase by 150 percent; these dispensers will be needed to accommodate the expected growth in bus services. The fueling station will also be available to Twin Rivers Unified School District and neighboring transit agencies.
$4,200,000 from the project’s participants.
The CNG-powered buses supported by the station will displace over 2.6 million gallons of petroleum-based diesel fuel each year, in the process producing 21 percent fewer emissions than similar diesel vehicles and reducing emissions by more than 7,600 tons of CO2 per year.
